My goodness, Mr Tell is recommending a show that isn't 12-29-68! What has the Archive come to??

Anyway, in connection with our other thread, I think there is only ONE drummer in this show - MICKEY!
So this may be a good example of early Dead without Bill. Could anyone tell?

The only other Mickey-only show is from a couple weeks earlier, unfortunately sounds awful:

And speaking of cuts - this show has a wonderful Dark Star>Other One portion - but then New Potato gets chopped to nothing! A tragic moment for all '68 fans:

And speaking of great shows - this one's REALLY cool:

And in celebration of all things '68, I'll throw in links to a couple really nice shows which are in not-so-nice sound, but I love 'em anyway: (Alligator>Caution freakout!) (fast & spunky!)

And, I can't let '68 go without mentioning this set which is just hours and hours of '68 joy!

yea, and that last one tends to get overlooked -

( -

but there are some terrific versions of Saint Stephen in it.

And other goodies.

Excellent, LitA; I have put that 10-20 show in the package for Rob. And, Betty Nelson's Farm is a great one (9-2). November, as you note, is sparse; number and quality. So much less than Nov in 69 and 70. Damn.

As mentioned, for many shows unless the mix is just right, my meager skills prevent me from detecting all the boys and their contributions. Your mention of Bill's absence though is consistent with the "drummers in the background" impression I had of this when listening last night.

Thanks for all the good commentary; glad to have such support for 68.
